Updated Bathroom

When we built our house eighteen years ago, I thought I had to have the shiny brass faucets.  Even though it was an added expense, we splurged and I got them.  Since I'm new to blogging, I didn't think about making a "before" picture to post.  So, just close your eyes and let me paint a picture of what the room looked like before Mr. Handy Dandy got to work.  I had the contractor's mirror, gold faucets and the gold ten-light bar light across my framless mirror.  The pictures tell the "after" story. 

           New lights and framing around my old mirror.

Up close of the mirror to show the details in the corners.

                                      New sticks - old pot.

Yesterday, this little chair had a palm tree print on the seat. 
Now, it is a little on the "wild side".

The simple transformation has made such a difference and given us a whole new look.

Oh, I almost forgot - I also had shiny brass fixtures on the whirlpool - and boy are they proud of those in the store.  So, with a $7 can of metal paint, they now are the same color as my new oil-rubbed bronze facets on the sinks.  After my hubby painted them, I rubbed them with bronze paint - taking it slow with a light hand until I got it "just right".

I'm still looking for "just the right thing" to hang on the wall over the whirlpool.  And, I haven't brought this subject up, but I would love to have a new granite countertop, too.  We'll see about that idea.  And, new wall color is in the future.  I haven't totally decided if I will change my custom-made vanity.  I'm thinking I might use a chocolate glaze.  It's never-ending friends - but ain't it fun!

  1. I love your frame around the mirror, and love the lamp! Nice faucets too. I can see you have a knack for decorating. Great job.
